The event

The research project LAMPO – Lombardy-based Advanced Meteorological Predictions and Observations, steered by Politecnico di Milano, has tested a low-cost innovative system to forecast storms in a short timeframe. The aim of the system is to mitigate the impact of floods and hydrogeological instability through a close-knit network of GPS/GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) stations located around the River Seveso, in Lombardy, which monitor and estimate the amount of vapour in the atmosphere.

The final event for LAMPO will be held on Thursday 30 September 2021, from 10:00 to 13:30. The researchers will present the main results of this project and discuss the issues addressed with guests and stakeholders, explaining how the strategies to manage and mitigate risks caused by intense storms evolved during the project and how meteorological applications are used to manage emergencies in small sites and areas.

LAMPO (Lombardy-based Advanced Meteorological Predictions and Observations) is a research project financed by Fondazione Cariplo. The lead partner is the Geomatics and Earth Observation Laboratory GEOlab of Politecnico di Milano; the project also involves ARPA Lombardia (Regional Protection Agency), Fondazione Politecnico di Milano, the Politecnico spin-off GReD (Geomatics Research & Development) and the Department of Geosciences at the University of Padova.
